Cockroaches, Silverfish & Ants

Cockroaches, Silverfish & Ants

Cockroaches are known to be a very high risk pest, they breed rapidly and eat anything living upto 6months. Cockroaches are most active during the night. During the day they prefer to stay hidden in cracks and crevices, coming out to feed mostly at night time. Cockroaches are attracted to all types of food available in your home. They will eat anything from foods, paper, packaging, plastics and fabrics to animal matter.

They carry diseases such as salmonella, typhoid and dysentery. Infestations have also been linked to skin disorders such as eczema and asthma. The most vulnerable to infection are children and the elderly. Seeking professional help is very important, our knowledgeable team will provide discreet yet structured treatment. We have the most up to date procedures to treat the problem including sprays and fogging and the very latest food substitute gels.

Silverfish are nocturnal and thrive in damp places (bathroom or lavatory) and tend to scatter when light is switched on.

Due to their size and shape cracks and crevices offer a good concealed harbourage, for example : indoors – around door frames, skirting boards and under cracked tiles; outdoors – behind the bark of trees, under stones, under and around paved areas. Damp areas are favoured. These insects can make areas of your home unhygienic if an infestation is left untended as they can breed very quickly.

Ants infest our homes as they enjoy the food we do, hence you will find them in kitchens. Its essential to identify the correct species otherwise one can exacerbate the situation. Ants are social insects and there are a number of different species to consider. Different species have different colonies and caste systems. Some have multiple queens and are effective at rebuilding scattered colonies quickly.

Our technicians at Pest Piper are qualified experts who are able to classify not only the species that has infested your household or premises, but will also be able to correctly determine the right type of insecticide and bait to be used. Our services will provide a permanent solution to your infestation.

Although ants do not necessarily carry diseases they create a risk of contaminating your food, hence possibility of health risk. They walk across many surfaces before they reach your cupboard and thus, an infestation can be considered unhygienic.
